Roller tip tops

Postby Mike Oleson » Wed Feb 03, 2016 10:17 pm

Have been asked about replacing one on a customers older rod--are the original tops usually put on with epoxy or the more common tip top hot melt glue?
I have a suspicion someone may have tried to remove it already, with no easy removal.

I had an older Penn trolling rod that had a roller tip. I can't remember whether it was epoxy or hot melt but a little heat and it came right off just like any other tip.
